The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

FireShell + DocPad?

This is a fine introduction/package/setup of all the things I’ve been hearing other savvy devs chit-chat about for the past few years. However, it still doesn’t answer the CMS question: Just because you can make a fine HTML+CSS+JS site, doesn’t mean it’s WordPress/Drupal theme compatible – those two packages add in their own CSS classes, …

Mac Finder meets Subversion

There’s a few scripts out there for colorizing subversion checkouts in Terminal. And there’s a few good Subversion clients for Mac. (and a few bad free ones). The major feature for svn’ers though – especially newbies – is using Mac’s color-labels for what’s in the repo, what’s not, & what will be committed. Here’s the …

A Designer’s Guide to Speaking “Website”

“I use CSS for that” = “Don’t fuss & perfect that effect too much, I’m recreating that on my own.” “Oh, that’s just Javascript” = Don’t do too much of that, it’ll slow the website to a crawl.

WordPress Theming is actually Programming.. or, “Look, I’m all grown up now”

These past 2 weeks at work, I’ve learned a lot about optimization; you could say it’s been a “reality check.” Last week, I took time to check response times on websites we host on Godaddy. Taking the plain HTML+CSS times as a baseline for size, resources & speed (very fast), I started to wonder what …

Quick-and-dirty Responsive Layouts

So there’s the great thing called response.js. It’s the solution often presented as ideal. But it’s a bit overkill. I want a fast, light, small script that will do the job, without all the media-query overhead. [script lang='js'] [/script] So here it is.. works with any jQuery enabled site, and simply adds a ‘.mobile’ class …

jQuery Form+Cufon = IE8 error. Just another day on the job…

There are some things which you shouldn’t do. Editing WordPress’ “core” is one of them. But when debugging, there’s 2 routes to go: deeper, into lower-level code, or higher, trying to avoid the situation. Those who are more detail-oriented like me might tend towards the lower-level fixes.. On to the point: It seems one should …

Back in the biz, oh yeah, nothing changed..

There’s always been a line-of-division between those who make pretty pictures, and those who have to make those pictures do something. Interaction designers have come to fill the void, but if there are none, there remains a 1999-level of disconnect. You remember last century, right? The one that gave us OfficeSpace, Matrix & Fight Club? …
